Introduction from Gourmet Nutrition:
“Pizza seems to have an almost primal draw, with people in all cultures eating some form of the dish. Of course, regardless of its widespread appeal, pizza has never been known as a “healthy” offering, because of the fact that it’s typically high in processed carbs and saturated fats. With this dish, we’ve lightened it up by using our own homemade pesto, chicken, and a host of veggies – all on a whole wheat tortilla. If you like pizza, you’ll certainly come back for seconds of this thin-crusted alternative.”
